Harry and Meghan see benefits of horse therapy for disabled children in Morocco

The Duke and Duchess ​of Sussex have arrived at a prestigious Moroccan equestrian club to learn more about the country's programme of supporting children with disabilities through equine therapy.

Harry and Meghan were all smiles at the Royal Moroccan Equestrian Club Dar Essalam when they were greeted by officials and began their tour to see how the youngsters are benefiting from working with horses.

The royal couple will join a horse-grooming session at the club in the capital, Rabat, before watching a riding demonstration and meeting trainers and instructors.

They arrived casually dressed and hand in hand, and, as they walked past horses in a stable block, they reached out to stroke the animals.

Later they will watch Moroccan children make a dish from the Grenfell cookbook championed by Meghan.

The duke and duchess, whose three-day tour of Morocco ends on Monday, will watch a cookery demonstration by underprivileged youngsters from the capital.

Under the guidance of Moha Fedal, one of Morocco's foremost chefs, they will make Moroccan pancakes from Together: Our Community Cookbook.

Meghan was the driving force behind the publication, suggesting the idea to a group of women who got together to cook at a Muslim cultural centre in north Kensington in the aftermath of the Grenfell Tower blaze.

Sales of the book, which was a best-seller, have enabled the cooks from the Hubb Community Kitchen to expand their work producing dishes for their neighbourhood.
